Note to self


A friend and coworker told me that she'd rather not hear about the family stuff I've been dealing with, because it makes her feel helpless and she knows there isn't anything she can do. I was amused by her comment because, really, if there were something to be done, I would simply do it rather than indulge myself in talking about it. I hope I will always remember that it is when I feel most helpless in the face of someone's problems, that I do the most good by listening.

LOL you were amused by her comment. Glad you were not offended.

Wow, I am amazed that someone would actually say that. I may feel helpless too but everyone needs a shoulder and and ear (other than their own) and I hope that I will always be that shoulder and ear when someone needs to use them. I'm here, so please drop me an email and let me know how you are doing, ok?

I'm in shock,that is NOT a friend. I always listen to my friends problems or anything they are going through. Thats what friends are for. I have a female friend that complains all the time and sometimes I might feel like I dont know what to say so I say,Im here for you if you need me.
Sometimes people only seem to care about themselves and forget about the feelings of others including their friends.
I love listening to people,if I cam make them happy or anything that puts a smile on their face then it makes me happy. If you ever need to vent or just get it out just let me know.

Yes, I'm surprised that someone would actually say that. Where will she be when she needs a shoulder and an ear? It's a simple comfort that we can all give - just listening to others!

laugh, thanks for the defense, but let's face it, my friend was honest! We all have that helpless feeling sometimes and she has a point -- unfixable times are a lot like the flu, there's no point spreading it around and it's best to just keep to myself until it passes!
